When Your Hero Will Escape Prison
If you are fortunate enough, you can get your Hero back immediately thanks to two items. If not, you will have to wait an agonizing amount of time. The good news is that no matter what happens, your Hero dying is not the end of the world.
Two Ways to Get Your Hero Back Immediately
The two ways to get your Hero back immediately are from Hemlock or Instant Execution.
When you use the item “Hemlock” you are sacrificing your Hero intentionally in order to get it back sooner. Your Hero “eats” the Hemlock while he’s in the enemy prison and automatically dies after the time period defined on your Hemlock item. Currently there are three different time frames for Hemlock: 2 hours, 4 hours, and 6 hours.
To clarify, you do not lose your Gear or Gems when your Hero dies, unless you are wearing Cores and the timer runs out (which it will because no Cores last for two hours).
When your enemy uses the Instant Execution item, they kill your Hero immediately. Enemies will often use this item when they’ve captured your Hero and don’t want it to be rescued by your Alliance. Instead of waiting for execution time to arrive which would leave them vulnerable, and instead of just releasing your Hero and letting it wreak havoc on the rest of their Kingdom, they use Instant Execution. Cores do not auto expire when you use instant execution.
- The higher their Prison level, the longer they can hold your Hero.
- The higher your Hero, the shorter they can hold your Hero.
Unfortunately the exact time periods are not known. You will see a countdown timer that says “Time Until Execution”, but that is only the earliest time your enemy can execute your Hero. The amount of time they can hold onto your Hero after the “Time Until Execution” is determined by the two points above.
Finally, your Hero will not lose any experience unless you don’t Resurrect it for 7 days. Take some time to relax, hang out with your Alliance, and plan your next KvK!
